Further details
By mistake, image 6b of the Speculum (Marriage of Tobias and Sara) is shown here instead of the meeting of priests. The woodblock series for the Speculum omits a number of common scenes that were replaced with re-used woodcuts, the Speculum blocks were also used in editions by Vérard.
